Perl + Bugzilla in Outreachy Round 13!

I am very proud to be mentoring in the 13th round of Outreachy.

We have a a list of ideas
and a growing list of bugs that would make for good “small contributions”.

I’m open to emails or irc discussions and I’ll try to answer
any and all questions.

email: dylan [at] mozilla [dot] com
or join #bugzilla, I’m in IRC from
13:00 UTC until about 22:00 UTC.

Here’s are project blurb:

Perl is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over 28 years of development, making it one of the longest standing FOSS projects. The Perl Foundation is funding a position working on Bugzilla, a widely used, Perl-based issue tracker. In 18 years of development, Bugzilla has grown into a complex application that is used in many different workflows by organizations including Mozilla, the GNOME Project, Red Hat, and Some of this complexity is particularly evident in the search functionality, both in implementation and in user interface. We have several proposals to simplify and improve searching, which will positively impact Bugzilla sites around the world.
